+5EV on a 200ISO photo is like 6400ISO

Hi, it's with both lenses - the two samples I posted are one from each. In general I am happy with the noise performance but I've not seen this level of banding discussed anywhere else, especially not at base ISO. I'm going to give Olympus a call tomorrow to see what they say. Thanks for the help, Peter.

For future reference, the best combination of ISO Setting plus post-processing EC you can choose for such a shot (based on what is known about the E-M5 sensor) would be to take the shot at ISO 800 and boost it three EV or take it at ISO 1600 and boost it two EV in post-processing.
